15923 Building Relationships: Learning and the BRAIN!!

When teachers know and begin to understand how the brain learns, they can better serve their students, thus increasing positive behavior and academic performance. Understanding thescience behind how we are hard wired to learn is empowering for educators. There is a strong relationship between the brain, SEL, and learning. The frontal lobe houses the structures where most brain activity occurs when people care about each other, trust each other, and want to be friends. It is also home to our executive control function, where we make decisions, process information, and learn. Through a combination of interactive lecture, practical activities, and meaningful movement; you will leave with the skills, understanding, and knowledge needed to become an awesome brain-based educator.
